Nikoloski: The procedure for constitutional amendments started by the Government is completely outside the Constitution


The vice-president of VMRO-DPMNE, Aleksandar Nikoloski, in an interview with talked about whether anyone in the VMRO-DPMNE MP group would support constitutional amendments. When asked that the Government has started the process for constitutional amendments with the formation of the working group, whether VMRO-DPMNE will remain completely outside this process until the end, Nikoloski replied: “The position of VMRO-DPMNE is absolutely clear: This parliamentary composition does not have a mandate for constitutional amendments and constitutional changes will not happen. This so-called start of the procedure is completely outside the Constitution. The way to change the Constitution is very clear. And that is: first, a constitutional majority is formed from a two-thirds majority in the Parliament, which should vote on the need for constitutional amendments. After that, a constitutional commission is formed which determines a draft text. That proposed text goes back to the Parliament and is adopted with 61 votes, then it goes again to the constitutional commission, which is in charge of conducting a public debate. The final text is sent back to the Parliament for final adoption, which also requires a two-thirds majority, said Nikoloski.
